The Special Prosecutor's Office Against Impunity (FECI) of the Public Prosecutor's Office (MP) of Guatemala reported today that the raids on the telephone company Tigo, subsidiary of Millicom International Cellular, continue and could be extended during the weekend.

Guatemala, Nov 24 (EFE) .- The Special Prosecutor's Office Against Impunity (FECI) of the Public Ministry (MP) of Guatemala reported today that the raids on the telephone company Tigo, subsidiary of Millicom International Cellular, continue and could be extended during the weekend.

This operation -in five Tigo offices- began on Thursday with the participation of the International Commission against Impunity in Guatemala (CICIG) and the National Civil Police (PNC). declared in reserve.

"One of the raids is still under development", in an office in zone 10 of Guatemala City, explained to FEE the head of the FECI, Juan Francisco Sandoval.

The prosecutor added that the procedure in the zone 10 office -which local media links with the president of Tigo, the only Central American billionaire, Mario López- " could extend during the weekend, "it will conclude" until we finish ".

This operation also takes place in other administrative headquarters of the telecommunications company in the city ​​and the metropolitan area, like the central one of the company, well-known like Tigo Place and located in the kilometer 9.5 of the Highway to El Salvador.

Sandoval confirmed that it was not realized no capture and that the purpose of the operation is to investigate Tigo on a case of corruption which did not reveal further details.

Last July, the owner of the CICIG, the Colombian Ivan Velasquez, had revealed that together with the Prosecutor's Office they would investigate Tigo and the National Unity of Hope (UNE) party, which governed from 2008 to 2012, to see how the The Government of Guatemala was able to favor Lopez's telecommunications company.

However, Attorney General Thelma Aldana said yesterday, Thursday, that the raids have to do with the statement as an effective collaborator of the ex-manager of Telgua-Claro (owned by América Móvil), Julio Porras Zadik.

The ex-manager was sentenced in June for electoral financing illicit to the Patriotic Party in 2011, when it came to power the binomial of Otto Pérez Molina and Roxana Baldetti, prosecuted for corruption.

According to the statement of Zadik, the telephone Claro hired the services of the former Ambassador of Guatemala in the United States (2013-2015), Julio Ligorría, so that in 2011, during the electoral campaign, mediate the conflict of his company with Tigo, who demanded 400 million dollars from 1998.

Zadik said that Claro equaled Tigo in his contributions to the campaign of the Patriot collective with a payment of 15 million quetzales (about 2 million dollars), which supposedly was part of a "political-commercial" strategy of Claro designed by Ligorría to try to solve the litigation.

Ligorría He forged the meeting in Mexico between Pérez Molina, Baldetti and the Mexican and fifth richest man in the world, Carlos Slim, owner of América Móvil, and made the photos of the same to be disseminated by the social networks, which soon caused Tigo, who saw his rival's approach with future Guatemalan leaders, request a meeting to reach an agreement with the company. Slim.

On September 2, 2011, less than a month after the meeting, Telgua and Tigo "signed a settlement and settlement agreement for the 400 million dollars" and Solved the problem of Telgua "financing the Patriotic Party", according to the first inquiries.

In addition to this case of corruption, the owner of the CICIG, the Colombian lawyer Ivan Velásquez, had said last July that together with the FECI they would investigate Tigo and the National Unity of Hope, who governed from 2008 to 2012, to see how the Guatemalan government could favor Lopez's telecommunications company.
